Meet Jacob the Bar Mitzvah Boy’s Dad

Passover went out with a bang this year. To celebrate the last matzo box making it into the trash, Saturday Night Live brought in an unexpected guest: Introducing podiatrist Billy Crystal as Jacob the Bar Mitzvah Boy’s dad!

The father-son duo came to explain why Passover is different from all other nights (Highlight: “The third reason Passover is different from other nights, is that we dip twice. I don’t know about you, but I always dip my food twice. Once in salsa, and once in guacamole!”). You do the math.
